Happy bank holiday weekend one and all, and of course Presidential Election day (and 'Red Dead Redemption' day if you're into that). There's a jam-packed 'Late Late Show' in store tonight with 'Prime Time' presenter David McCullagh in studio after the polls close to deliver the RTÉ/Red C Exit Poll result in the race to the Áras.
Also on the show, Ryan will chat to Catherine Corless, the historian who uncovered details of a mass grave at the former Mother and Babies Home in Tuam. She will give her thoughts on the Government’s decision this week to initiate a forensic excavation at the site. The last time Catherine appeared on the show she delivered such a powerful interview she earned a rare standing ovation from the audience:
Dublin actor Allen Leech will also be in studio to chat about what it was like to achieve worldwide fame playing Tom Branson in the critically acclaimed 'Downton Abbey', and his role as Freddie Mercury’s manager in the highly anticipated movie, 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.
He’s one of the GAA’s most talked about personalities, and an All-Ireland winning hurler and manager. Davy Fitzgerald joins Ryan to chat about his legacy, his fiery reputation, and the latest season of 'Ireland’s Fittest Family' which kicks off on Sunday.
In April, Sean Cox went to Anfield to watch his beloved Liverpool in action in the Champions League, but ended up fighting for his life. Ryan is joined by Sean’s wife Martina Cox, to discuss how the family’s life was changed forever on that evening.
Finally, comedian Des Bishop will be in studio to talk about our obsession with Netflix and carvery dinners, while there will be music from Bell X1 and Gavin James.
Catch 'The Late Late Show' on RTÉ One tonight at 9.35pm.
